Week 5: The Sprouthouse takes seed…

The week began with an intense meeting in which we narrowed our focus and began to think about the details and construction of the proposed greenhouse, a.k.a. the ‘Sprouthouse.’  Our week’s momentum was anticipating the comprehensive presentation of our concept to show Ray and the rest of the PDA on Friday.  On Wednesday, we broke up into teams to think about specific ideas such as water catchment, cladding possibilities, construction details, and other aspects of the design.  Although we were focusing on details, we were also trying to keep in mind the larger principles which had shaped our thinking from the beginning:  creating an adaptable, educational, welcoming, and visible design.

After Wednesday’s class session, we went into full production mode.  Still different teams were formed, each concentrating on a different aspect of the presentation: drawings, renderings, diagrams, text, and physical models.  By Friday we had produced a beautiful and useful presentation of our idea- but plenty of work remains to be done.  Stay tuned for more!
